Too busy for a smear test
A quarter of women in Swindon are too busy to have smear test.
That is according to a new study from the town's NHS, which has also found a third of women have put it off because they are too anxious about going for a test.
The figures have been released as part of European Cervical Cancer Prevention Week.
Around 1,000 women die of cervical cancer in the UK every year, but regular cervical screening provides a high degree of protection against the disease and is offered free on the NHS to women over 25.
You can arrange to be screened at Carfax NHS medical centre - tel: 01793 541655 - or at the Contraception and Sexual Health Service - tel: 01973 428514.
